Students in the BSIB program complete in-depth study of international business, take courses in the principal fields of business, and choose a concentration in a functional area. BSIB students choose a program track, which determines the country where they will spend their expatriate year and the language they will study. Students receive a minor in International Affairs or the language of their program track.
Students are required to take up to 6 courses in their chosen language, depending on prior language experience. Students are tested when they enter the program and are placed at the appropriate level.
Four courses from one of the following areas:AccountingEntrepreneurshipFinanceManagementManagement Information SystemsMarketingSupply Chain Management
3 open electives
The actual number of electives that students take depends on the amount of transfer credit brought in prior to the student's matriculation. Open electives may be used for custom degree options. Only students who matriculate to the D'Amore-McKim School of Business as freshmen will take INTB1202. Internal and external transfers will replace this course with a business elective.
Please see the BSIB section of the current Undergraduate Catalog for specific course details of the program.
